That was me, nice to have a friendly wave from fellow Alfa owner always makes the day better. Yours is also a lovely shinny black 159 Sportwagon Ti? I was on my way to Cardiff for the day.
Welcome aboard! No doubt will see you around about. See from your profile you're in Oxon. Have I seen you on the Alfa site previously ?

Black. 159 on the A33 near the Wellington roundabout yesterday during rush hour. I waved at you and the black Giulietta just in front of you.

What with other spots of Alfa's the A33 between Reading and Basingstoke should be known as Alfa Alley!

Hello to one and all

Just completed a round trip Stevenage to Aylesbury and back. 3 spots, M25 anti-clockwise Red 159 Ti (NLK) cheers for the wave, very shiny paint. Dark metallic 159 SW on A41, I moved over to let you go, (I can't push it at the moment nursing my gearbox until I can get it sorted) and last but not least... Red 159SW A1(M) north.

Great to see you all :0)

Followed by a couple of lads in a Brera on Thursday night form Seal to the traffic lights on the A20 for West Malling. We exchanged brief comments through the window at the lights. First Brera spot in ages.

Silver 159 heading in to Tadley this evening. May have been a Ti.

Hello from my Giulietta as I waved to you.

Yesterday morning (Wednesday 10th), 07:50, heading away from Thame Oxon towards Haddenham. Elks, was that you? Was in my wife's silver Giulietta sprint special but still got a wave in.

I think it was last Wednesday, saw a nice looking red Brera (with angel eyes) heading south on the a38, just north of Derby.

I was in my works van and heading north.

Thursday afternoon, heading home, passed a red Brera in similar place (but the brera was heading north, me south this time). At first I thought it was the same but it didn't have angel eye lights - unless they're only on with side lights.

Either way, nice looking motor

Well to add I have a Red Brera 57 plate in Harold Hill , Essex area. Had this for about two years now. Use to drive to Bethnal Green London for a job for about a year and then to Chelmsford for a year. Can now be spotted heading towards the city airport on the a12 and north circular most days . Hi to all Alfa Owners

Hi to you.
Hello Julian!

EDIT: no - you said it was a SW so that wasn't me. Was just thinking I don't remember seeing a white G today. Oh well maybe another time...

Definitely a SW ericsmate. I'm easy to spot at the moment as I have a roof box on the car as I'm off to France on Thursday.

I always keep an eye out. I try to wave at all Alfa's

Then, following surviving the 'Asda experience', driving back though Little Milton, at 09:50 spotted a black (or could've been a very dark blue), 159 saloon heading in the M40 direction.
Going to need a lie down now, two Alfas in one hour, phew !!

Red Brera in on Lytham front yesterday, about 1330.

Unfortunately I was on foot, otherwise we'd have been twins.

11:25 this morning, on the A329 between J7 of the M40 and Thame. A lovely blue Brera. Could've had the front grille darkened too possibly. We were in my wife's '16 silver Giulietta sprint speciale but still got a wave off to you as we passed in the opposite direction.
